Of all the things that make my Lil Dog spin round and round cats and kittens one of the most frustrating is the following…

Study Confirms that Neanderthals and Humans Got It On.

Artwork Confirms Aliens and Cavemen Interacted

Artwork Confirms Aliens and Cavemen Interacted

No it’s not the fact that Humans n Neanderthals (may have) “got it on” as the headline suggests…

No it’s the headline itself that drives me crazy.

It’s one example of perhaps hundreds we’re subjected to every month

This is a common, way too common, annoying me out of my Lil Dog mind common news tactic.

For ratings (or worse) News often features sketchy science stories from scientists or companies with an agenda.

What am I talkin about…well lets look at the story itself.

Now, a pair of European scientists say that they have confirmed the human-Neanderthal reproduction hypothesis using statistical modeling — and these results, the researchers add, should go a long way to change the way we think of other human-like species.

Okay well here we can see that again the writer of the story uses the word “confirmed”, suggesting absolute correctness, but jes a few words later we encounter the troubling phrase “statistical modeling”.  Of course we can’t automatically discount the research, but S.M. research is notoriously easy to “build to order”.

“We did a bunch of math to compute the likelihood of two different scenarios,” says Laurent Frantz, study co-author and evolutionary biologist at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. “Our analysis shows that a model that involves interbreeding is much more likely than a model where there was sustained substructure in Africa.” The scientist cautions that sustained substructure might still have occurred, “but it cannot be used to explain the genetic similarities” all on its own.

And of course here’s where we get to what I want to talk about (and have talked about in numerous other posts).

If the headline had read…Study Suggests it was Much More Likely that Neanderthals and Humans Got It On…I wouldn’t be writing about it right now. But this purposeful misleading is happening more and more often and usually with a specific social agenda involved

Ya see I get to hear people use these Science News Reports where the possible breakthroughs have been reported and now repeated as fact (Women handling more pain than men, Global Warming, Home ownership = Responsible citizenry etc etc) in daily conversations, arguments and blogs.

And have very little luck trying to explain that what was reported is not, or may not be actual scientific fact at this point.

But why yer askin?

Why would scientists lie?

Scientist of course are harmless nerds dedicating their lives to help humanity, selfless and above petty things like politics, social ideology or greed…oh it is to laugh.

Let’s go again to our article and see if there are any clues.

This party needs some Neanderthal Babes!

“Know what this party needs?” ” Yea, some Neanderthal Babes, Bro!”

“Some think that we outcompeted [other hominins](sic)or that they were killed by humans, but now we can see that it’s not that simple.” In all likelihood, some Neanderthals were recruited into certain human populations, he says, and shared in their daily lives. So thinking of humanity solely in terms of a struggle to destroy all that differs from our species is, at least partially, incorrect. ” Frantz says.

Ahh…I see…it all comes clear now…Lolarious.

The first two words I bolded point out the suggestive words. He doesn’t say absolutely beyond all reasonable doubt,  with scientific certainty he use the word likelihood instead. He doesn’t point to specific and documented populations, jes suggests that there must have been certain populations.

The highlighted red sentence of course is where we get to the nut of it. The studies authors and the article writer both have an underlying agenda, something they want to prove and announce to the world, mankind is meant to be universally co-operative and peaceful.

Now I’m not saying this Human/Neanderthal theory is wrong, I personally am a supporter of this theory, it’s jes and again, the headline…

When you read the whole article, it almost always reveals the true story.

But in certain populations, that might be askin too much.

 

 

 

Well I’m a little late into the blog-o-sphere, I’m sure, with my comments on this whole debacle in the Ukraine, cats n kittens..

Well n actually that hasn’t been a debacle at all, jes the opposite in fact but again…

But as to my thoughts to a title…well I didn’t really wanna be the 250th blogger with “Putin his Boot in His Mouth” as his blog title, so I jes put in a couple of my favorites.

I’m sure been a pretty hot topic n all

So the thing is, well I ended by blendin three ideas my little dog had been chasin and I came up with…well…I don’t know what to call ’em….

And anyway like usual, I’m jes gonna go fer it and we’ll see how it all works out in the end…

Click on the pic if yer interested in checking out my Putin N Obama page and well yea, there ya’ go…

 

OPP 1

Hey dee ho cats n kittens so if I haven’t mentioned it before I only get one TV channel.

I know, hard to believe in this day of overly active cable ‘s 500+ choices…but two things.

One cable could have about twenty channels and most people would hardly notice & two cable is not only over rated but over priced.

Of course I’m off the be ate’n path ’cause the point is this.

I spend every morning watching NBC News.

Wait okay that’s not the point but it’s on the path.

NBC 1

Savannah “Gigglebees” Guthrie.

A few mornings ago I was one again watching the “Cast” of the Today show outside the (ugh I’m gonna hate typing this) 30 Rock studios.

I was struck by how they were interacting with the crowd that (every morning) gathers behind the bright orange (room) barriers.

NBC

Matt “Bad Boy” Lauer.

2010 Miss Universe Pageant - Arrivals

Natalie “I’m not Savannah” Morales.

Now people do flock from all over the country…heck the world jes to get a glimpse of them, screamin and hollerin, wavin signs , so it’s not hard to see how they come to view themselves as News Stars.

And this news cast, like I’m sure all the other major networks, as well as CNN & Fox, eat this stuff up.

NBC Al Roker

Al “The Joker” Roker.

And what do they do to deserve such accolades, well yes they deliver the news of course, but they also keep us up to date on what’s trending, where we are as a culture, on who is hot and also not, what we should be wearing, eating or not eating,  and even believing.

But wait, yer saying, these people aren’t runnin the country…okay yes I guess in some ways that’s accurate, but they have become part a large part of the entertainment elite in this country…yes that’s right…news anchors as entertainment elite. And what does that say about the process of delivering the day’s (or yesterdays in this case) happenings?

Can we really trust what ever cause de jour they are pushing?

big ed

When the news was the star.

Can we imagine The Cronk having legions of cheering fans? Or ol Ed Murrow…yes, yes they were popular, but this, this fan base fer news casters is something new.

But they are jes the profligate mouth piece of the mighty beast.

They are the light house keepers guiding the flotilla of facts into our mental harbor…

Lets see what other wildly near accurate metaphors can I use.

They are the Bishops of Bull, and in the end, all the other elite must pass muster before getting a time slot with which to ply the plebeian masses.

On the right side of the issues, ya get yer time to promote and publisize, step outside the acceptable culture modifying mode and yer a blasphemer…

The Butter Queen

Butter maybe better, but butter’s made her bitter.

Think of poor ol’ butter queen Paula Dean, one the darling of the morning shows now a social pariah…

But it’s not jes our news heads…

Ever since “The Bill” presidents have been dancing at the crossroads of politics and entertainment.

barack-obama-zach-galifianakis

Educating or entertaining?

Our latest Commander in Chief has taken this to a whole new level, and is himself an new political animal.

Barack's monolouge

Barack-o-louge.

If Bill was our first Rock Star President, Barack is a Hollywood heavyweight on a par with Brad Pitt and Will Smith.

How far will the next Prez go to advertise his agenda?

But it’s the whole show I’m interested in talking about here, the full feature of fabulous factotums…

As a matter of course you regularly hear of events where movie stars, politicians (mostly libs, sorry not being bias, jes factual)and the newsies mingle at posh celebrity bashes.

Of course I hear this from the cast of Today who are proud and (next word my interpretation) pompously trumpet these segments as hot off the presses news stories.

These significant to the continuance of the free world accounts are delivered with lots of self grandiosity, confirming the casts imminent importance.

In fact the whole kit n kaboodle of them have become a mutual back patting society.

Deliverers and defenders of the new truths or nuths.

It’s the dawning of a new age cats n kittens.

The age of the Entertainocray.

The Media Elite tell us what to believe and

Of our fame fueled favorites we do sing.

Satan Laughs When Doves Cry

January 28, 2014

Okay well hey cats n’ kittens isn’t life fun.  All the stories that come across my computer screen. So much news to cover, but the ol dysu(possibly) no story holds as much weight for the future of all mankind (maybe) than this: The Opening Salvo in the coming Apocalypse.

It's all good fun.

It’s all good fun.

If you missed the story somehow, The Pope and two random children were releasing doves yesterday to symbolize and call fer peace in the Ukraine.

Till someone loses an eye!

Till someone loses an eye!

Obviously, at the very least, the ol’ trickster himself isn’t onboard this Ukrainian peace call.

But perhaps this is the ominous signs of something

The Feathered Minions of Beelzebub?

The Feathered Minions of Beelzebub?

far more sinister…

The end of the world as we know it.

If you know any orthodox Christians keep yer eye on them. If any of them disappear in the next couple weeks or so, simply vanish leaving unexplained questions well…

Now I of course am not saying that the apocalypse is beginning, jes that as far as signs and portents go this is an awesome one.

So lets keep our eyes open shall we.

And any seven headed beast shows up or a news story featuring four horsemen I’ll let ya know.

*** COMMENT HERE ***

January 27, 2014

One of the things I love about every blog I visit and enjoy regularly is reading the often hilarious comments that follow.the ol' dysu

Even before this grand venture started, pouringmyartout, a quirky, fun and intelligent blog I recently started following was no exception.

Then he came up with this idea, a bold, exciting, user interactive, reader participatory idea.

I call it bold because I would balk at the responsibility, rebel against the pressure of holding e-dialouges with so many crazed bloggers.Annnyway go there yerself and see, enjoy, n’ maybe even join in the fun.

*** COMMENT HERE ***.

Okay so I swear to bejeebus I’m gonna try to keep this short cats n kittens and yes as always it’s me the ol Dysu.the ol dysu

Here’s the deal…I’m trying to get a bunch of other stuff done, tryin to ignore politics and the assorted cultura-socio drama that makes my little dog spin. I mean, oh it is to laugh, at least temporarily.

But then comes this, and fer you gentle readers who think Fox news is biased well you just don’t watch it enough, cause all day long I have to hear seemingly valid discussions on whether criticisms of President Obama, as Oprah Winfrey suggests, are based on White America’s underlying racist tendencies.

Proof that idiocy knows no racial barriers.

Proof that idiocy knows no racial barriers.

Okay I’m gonna leave that topic alone of course, because I am sure that somewhere, somehow, some white conservative christian* mouthpiece is willing to prove me wrong…That in some east side Jewish borough or L.A. Koreantown grocery mart they openly mock and disrespect our President. That in snooty East Coast Country Clubs (many infested with rich liberal John Kerry types) they secretly snicker at his ghettoization of the White House

No I love Common really!   He's on my iPod playlist!

No I love Common really!
He’s on my iPod playlist.

But to suggest that Middle Americans are somehow outlandishly disrespectful of our currents President(policies) because of his race is  something that I don’t believe even you, first lady of American Truth, can really believe.

Not jes the us being racist part. But the disrespect for the office part.

Miss Winfrey I know you were around during the 8 years President Bush was in office.

During those years there was no hidden or subtle disrespect by many of you on the so called tolerant left.

Attacks on Bush

The most popular attack on Bush.

In fact much of the criticism of Pres Bush often had little to do with the policies and more simply attacks against the man in person. For who he was.

I have suffered in White America!

I have suffered in White America!

The Minister of the church that you attended in these years is a prime example.

Where were your concerns of disrespect for the office then.

Bashin Bush was a popular past time!

Bashin Bush was a popular past time!

Wasn’t some of the vocal criticisms not only personal but racist in nature? That he was a rich christian* conservative white male?

Nazi left "code speak" fer white racist.

Nazi: Left “code speak” fer white racist.

And yet here where very little evidence is available to support your theory (save the same old baseless mantra that inherently America is the most racist nation on earth) Yer’re all over my TV voicing yer opinions.

Not only is there no evidence save the occasional whack job (who white Americans immediately rise en masse to condemn) there is plenty of evidence to argue that most middle class middle Americans wanted President Obama to succeed simply because he

2012: Pres Obama campaigns amid a sea of white faces...(plenty more pics where this came from)

2012: Pres Obama campaigns amid a sea of white faces…(plenty more pics where this came from)

is black.

And I don’t know maybe that is racism of a sort…

But Miss Winfrey, this outcry you are hearing is disappointment in the broken promises of his (doomed to fail) ideology.

Yer Racist Ya'll

Yer Racist Ya’ll

Or perhaps Ma’am, do you feel as Pres Obama does, and has expressed openly, as Reverend Wright does, and has extolled from his pulpit, that it is long past the time that White America had it’s comeuppance?

I humbly and dysfunctionally await yer response?

Well, okay Cats n’ Kittens here we are fer another continuing round of our longest running, by far most expensive situation Comedy ( I would call the ol dysuit a reality show but far too much is scripted, even by today’s reality show standards) Our Washington Boobs, brought to you by you, the American Taxpayer.

Oh hey hi there it’s jes me the…no wait The One and Only, Original Dysfunctional Unit. I jes wanted to clarify that real quick cause of all the dysfunction comin out of Washington right now.

So jes full and legal notice to all you media types in case your thinking of calling any one, or part of the whole Washington establishment a “Dysfunctional Unit” you will be hearing from our legal dept.

Washington DysfunctionBut of course now back to the business of talking about this business, or more specifically this non-business going on among our representatives in Washington.

Before we get in the meat of this though, let me clear up any misconceptions. I am first and foremost a States Rights Libertarian, not a Republican, I align myself with Republicans for obvious reason, but am not fond of the “Big Gov” agenda much of the Party espouses (neo-con’s like Newt “G-man” Gingrich).

I originally was attracted to the Tea Party but some of their most beloved and endorsed platforms such as building a wall at the US/ Mexico Border or outlawing abortion seem in direct contrast to the idea of liberty…what? Hold on wait.

No, no, I’m not in favor of the Government giving you carte blanche authority to kill your babies or crazy porous borders either….the statements above are not an ipso facto acknowledgement of your (unsupportable) arguments either.

The abortion issue I’ve written about a nauseum, but I have barely touched on the idiocy of building a fear based wall around the land of Women not to be trifled withthe free and the home of the brave…I mean should I have to?

See the bitch about living in a free system that  relies solely on the intelligence and responsibility of it;s citizens is it’s a dangerous and harsh system for people who choose, or are in some other way incapable of participating at a standard level. Before our social safety net probably a lot of Americans simply died off because they couldn’t compete.

A Evolutionary Impossiblity

A Evolutionary Impossiblity

That system is not the system we live in though. We still live in a “free system” that relies on it’s citizens values & judgement. But that system has slowly become corrupted.

Over the years this changing  interpretation of “free” has asked for (forced by law ) more and more of the efforts of the most responsible individuals above in efforts to prop up, support (and sometimes lionize as victims) the laziest, the worst, the most irresponsible members of the system (who to know better of course than one of their own*).

Until now, this society, this once great culture may be on the brink of dissolution and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

I, the original Dysu, have no one to blame but myself.

Yea, like a dope I read the book.

Yea, like a dope I read the book.

*The thing is I use to be a raging leftist. I wrote countless poems raging against “the man!” I belonged to Beyond War & Earth First. I believed that my party was the party of Truth, that’s right with a capital T, and liberty.

Truth the truth is the difference Ma'am.

Truth the truth is the difference Ma’am.

Then I got introduced to the Clinton’s. I mean don’t get me wrong I still like Bill, that doesn’t mean I’d buy a used car from him.

Anyway the lies and the b.s made me finally pay attention, really pay attention and I realized that I’d been duped. That was the start of my transformation. 9/11 of course was the next big defining factor and I have voted republican ever since.

The fact that liberals, democrats, media types try to sell me the idea that fanatical Islam, the Muslim world (and now perhaps dare I say portions of our own federal government) are not actively trying to harm America, American allies and interest all over the globe, but are simply reacting to America’s aggressive nature is so ludicrous I am amazed that I even have to write about it.

But I guess when our own President echos this philosophy I shouldn’t be so surprised.

Maybe I guess I am out of touch.

But ya know how I feel about words, definitions, the power of words and the subtle influence word usage can have on perception (ex: Americans were part of the militant raid protesting western influence in traditionally orthodox Muslim countries.

One by one.

Americans: wrong a purposeful inaccuracy to instill a sympathetic attachment.

They were recent immigrants, transplanted in Minneapolis like many others with the help of free flowing taxpayer dollars (Minnesota is a left wing liberal mecca) and with the help and support of good hearted Americans through non-profit agencies such as Lutheran Social Services.

There is no way to truly no how much gratitude and loyalty they felt toward their newly adopted country, but based on available evidence it would be easy to conclude not much. In fact it is quite easy to believe that they never really ever intended to join and contribute in a positive way to the grand American Dream. That they came here with devious intent and under false pretenses, to pretend to want to be Americans…that’s much different than “being Americans.”

Militant: Okay yea well maybe they see themselves that way. Hitler saw himself as the savior of Germany, the Nazi Party as the liberator of the world. So yea okay I understand they believe themselves to be militants. Why are the PTB attempting to sway my opinion in such a way? The people fighting on the other side are my enemy. I don’t see them as militants. They don’t want to free me from anything, they want to cause me terror or worse. Militant..oh it is to laugh.

Protesting western influence in traditionally orthodox Muslim countries: Victims, they’re just poor victims everybody. Just more victims of the evil, white, racist. ultra-christian, aggressively militaristic, morally controlling American Imperialistic Empire (while somehow at the same time being Zionist, decadent, morally bankrupt corrupt money driven society with too much freedom).

Is it any wonder my little dog spins.

And then we get this Affordable care act and I jes wanna ask all you supporters, affordable for who? The poor already had free health care,

Affordable for the uninsured? *Most of them don’t want it and aren’t going to take it, we’ll talk about the remaining part of that group in a minute.

And don’t even try to sell me the idea that this is better for the middle class. The middle class (mostly white, many Christian, but all hard working good Americans, will once again bear the brunt of this do-good philosophy) as rates skyrocket and they’re left with fewer and few options. Land of the free my arse.

I did it Mommy!

I did it Mommy!

We love Obamacare for others!

We love Obamacare for others!

Okay well lets quickly look at the uninsured. The largest portion of those people are young and are uninsured by choice and all experts (of which I am not one) and I agree they will likely remain uninsured choosing instead to pay a small penalty.

Now this is hilarious because, and I have heard no one else mention this, this group is in large part responsible for helping to elect our Most Wise and Benevolent Ruler. I mean that’s a hilarious joke.

Paid for by hard working Americans everywhere.

Paid for by hard working Americans everywhere.

As to the other part of this group, the un’insurable, or the “on the fringers” I’m sorry…I mean can we hold 2 million some odd citizens hostage based on the needs of few hundred thousand (if that).

I of course say no. And it’s not like I’m not part of that group, I am, and I still say no.

But then I can be a real ass sometimes, even to myself.

Lastly I wanna address the Government shut down….

Next up Obamachol!

Next up Obamachol!

I don’t know what all the fuss is about…I mean really isn’t it long past time we shut it down.

I mean I may be The Dysfunctional Unit, but I and all my fellow Americans need the Fed Gov as much as we need to be leeched for a cold.

Wait a minute is that covered under the ACA?
